Sometimes fixing a car just to keep it on the road is simply not worth it. When the cost of repairs exceeds the worth of the vehicle, you may want to get rid of it. Whether you don’t have the money to repair it or are simply fed up with constant breakdowns, you’ve decided to sell your old junk car and are now wondering how to proceed. Fortunately for you, thousands of people go through the exact same thing every month, and with a little guidance from us and this article, we’re confident you’ll be able to make the right decision.

Don’t lie or hide facts about the car

Most states, including New Jersey, have strict lemons laws to prevent selling lemons to unsuspecting buyers. Although you want to portray your car and its features in a positive light, you never want to lie about massive faults or crucial stuff you know but choose to ignore. Be upfront about any shortcomings, not only because it’s the law, but because the buyer will appreciate your honesty.

In most cases, people can tell whenever you’re lying or have something to hide, so it’s better to be honest and truthful. Chances are most people know the car’s not perfect and is in some need of TLC, hence its price. 

Your car’s not worthless

A lot of people think a broken transmission or a blown engine render the vehicle worthless, but that’s simply not true. Cars have thousands of components, all of them worth something to the right buyer. A lot of people buy broken cars just to part them out and sell the components individually.

And while you may not want to get your hands greasy and start parting your car out, a lot of people do. Your ‘worthless’ car can be worth thousands of dollars to someone, especially if it has expensive parts someone needs, like the engine, the transmission, the suspension, the body panels, etc. 

Consider a junkyard like ours in Fort Lee, New Jersey 201-620-6708 

Obviously, not every car can be parted out or has any real value if it’s been severely damaged or crashed. A lot of people avoid using junkyards since they think they’re not getting a fair deal, but if your car is totaled or you don’t want to go through the trouble of selling it just for a few hundred bucks, there are junkyards which will come and dispose of your old junk car in New Jersey for free. 

If you stop and think about it, the amount of time it would take to post an ad, take pictures, and deal with potential buyers, sometimes makes selling the car not worth it. A junkyard that comes to your place, takes care of the car, and hands you cash in hand depending on the car’s value, can be priceless. It’s the easiest and safest method to sell your junk car in NJ for free, since you don’t have to do anything apart from giving them a call.
